Name of creator
Frederick Augustus Bagley was born on September 22nd 1859 in St. Lucia, British West Indies. At the age of ten he came to Canada with his family. In 1874 he joined the North-West Mounted Police (NWMP) and served until 1899. During the second Boer War Bagley served as the commanding officer of "C" squadron, 5th regiment Canadian Mounted Rifles. His unit shipped off to South Africa but arrived after the war had ended. Bagley resumed his military service in First World War and afterwards moved to Banff, Alberta in 1924 and worked in the Museum of Natural History. He was also very involved in the musical life of Calgary, and conducted the Calgary Citizens' Band from 1903 to 1920. Bagley died in 1945.
Items were given to Keno Balla (uncle of donor, 1906-1993), by Bagley at some point during the 1920-30's in Calgary. Balla and Bagley played in a band together.
